Hello everyone,

A new DMG for Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion has been put together and can be found in the download section at http://www.mcstas.org/download.

* As Apple have discontinued distribution of X11, you need to install XQuartz from http://xquartz.macosforge.org/landing/ before installing McStas.

* You also need to install Command Line Tools inside Xcode (Xcode -> Preferences-> Downloads -> Components) and also allow installation of third party software (System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> General -> Allow applications downloaded from: Anywhere) - can be reset after installation of SciPDL etc. from the DMG.

* Note that to enable multi-core / parallel simulations, you need to compile openmpi yourself before installing McStas, since it is not provided by Apple on Lion and Mountain Lion. Alternatively you can perhaps get it via MacPorts.

* The DMG should also work on Lion - but all software on the DMG must be reinstalled if McStas was previously installed.
